The master bedroom is presented with traditional high ceilings, expansive windows, and light carpets, again offering beautifully styled cornicing and picture rails.

The second bedroom is again spacious, with the same elegance and grandeur thanks to the large windows with muntin bars and ornamental fireplace. The room’s size allows space for multiple chests and wardrobes, and can easily accommodate a king-sized bed. The en-suite also benefits from a commodious layout as well as light decoration.
The living room is impressive in its size, brightness, and array of charming features, with the same traditional ambience and airy décor as the rest of the property. Thanks to the flat’s proximity with the Bruntsfield Links Golf Club, the view from this room is stunning, with far reaching sights of green fairways and mature trees. Adjacent to the living room is the study, ideal for use as a third bedroom or a home office, with built in storage and a similarly fantastic view.
The kitchen is generous, with a large worktop, 4-ring hob, and dual ovens. The room also has space for a smaller dining area, and leads into the utility room with washing machine, tumble drier and large fridge, also with access to the side garden.
The garden to the front of the property is beautifully presented, with the well-maintained lawn, bushes and tree given privacy thanks to the high front hedge, whilst retaining plenty of natural sunlight. Next to the lawn is the shared driveway, offering a secure, private area for multiple cars.
